Hearing Testing With Hearing Associates

Hearing loss is an individualized condition that ranges from minor to severe cases. The reality of hearing issues is that even the most baseline hearing conditions can become severe when left untreated. At Hearing Associates, we conduct in-depth testing to treat and prevent the progression of our patients’ hearing conditions.

Hearing Testing

At Hearing Associates, we want our patients to feel informed about the hearing testing process, as hearing is a crucial part of your quality of life. Our hearing exams are pain-free and non-invasive and performed by specialists eager to answer any questions or concerns you may have, ensuring a smooth, insightful procedure.

Speech Testing

Speech testing evaluates how well a patient can hear people’s voices. It is a process that allows us to grade your ability to hear and process speech.

Otoacoustic Emissions (OAEs)

Otoacoustic emissions enable us to test the functionality of the cochlea. This test is primarily conducted on newborns; no patient response is necessary.

Pure Tone Testing

Pure Tone Testing is a process that determines your hearing capabilities by playing and recording the softest possible sounds you can hear.

Middle Ear Test

Middle ear testing uses tympanometry, which allows us to test the mobility of the eardrum. It also utilizes acoustic reflex testing to measure how much the muscle in your ear contracts in response to sound.

Audiogram Service

Once your hearing testing is complete, an audiologist will compose a detailed audiogram. An audiogram is a graph that details the patient’s hearing condition. Your hearing will be placed on a spectrum, allowing you to understand the type, degree, and configuration of your hearing loss.

Hearing Aids

Hearing aids are electronic, battery-operated hearing devices that amplify sounds for the individual wearing them. To be eligible for hearing aids, a hearing exam may be conducted by a specialist. If you are a candidate for hearing aids, a hearing test will inform your audiologist about how to adjust your new hearing aids for optimal performance.

The Purpose of Hearing Testing

Our specialists utilize a range of innovative methods to conduct in-depth hearing evaluations. These evaluations allow us to better understand a patient’s inner ear function by testing the intensity they hear sounds, pitches, and frequencies, as well as other fundamental functions that enable an individual to use their hearing comfortably.
